As you know if you read this blog often I love to change up my routine and take on new challenges in the gym. Now that the weather is warming up I’ll be spending time much less bundled up. It’s hard to hide figure flaws in tank tops and shorts or little, lightweight summer dresses. I’ve been working to make sure I’m lean but that I still retain my hard-won muscle mass…that way when I’m at the beach I won’t get sand kicked in my face by that big guy who picks on weaklings.
I don’t want to be that little, weak guy. Wait! I’m not a guy…nevertheless, It’s good to be strong!
I particularly want to make sure my abs are in great shape and that I have a strong core. Then I’ll be sure to look my best when I strut around the beach or the pool with my top off. Wait! I’m not a guy. I don’t do that…nevertheless, it’s good to have nice abs.
I found an advanced exercise that I’m going to be perfecting over the next weeks. Dragon Flags are NOT for the faint of heart. I’m going to be working my way up to doing them in a step by step fashion. They are very effective but require concentration on excellent form and practice. I’m up for the challenge! The following video shows the step by step progression to performing them in their most difficult form.
I have to admit I’m all excited to take on this new challenge. I’m looking forward to tightening up my core, getting stronger and making those abs pop. That way I can walk around the beach without being confronted by bullies, I can throw my shirt off at any time with confidence and I can grab my sword and defend my Sea Monkey family from advancing enemies.
